Jeff Ellis: Cody Anderson is a right handed pitcher from Feather River Junior College. He was drafted by the Rays last year in the 17th round, so a three round jump for him. He is an excellent athlete and played all three major sports in high school including being all league in both basketball and baseball. He is committed to go to TCU if the Indians do not sign him. He has size at 6’4” and his fastball sits in the low 90’s. He is the third pen arm the Indians have targeted in this draft, which is a bit of a surprise when you consider the teams greatest strength is more than likely pen arms.
